No impression when eighth of nine in a fillies maiden plate (Greyville Polytrack) upped to 1m1½f a year ago; first start for new trainer; returns from a lengthy absence so market could be informative; looks no easy task

Verdict

It could be worth forgiving Voshaarnooi a poor run last time out, and Sky Velocity is one to be feared. However, NATIONAL STAR is the one to back. She has seen the form of her latest run franked.
